Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1

January 30–February 1, 2020
Benaroya Hall

Marco Borggreve

Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto offers an unguarded view into a tormented composer’s private, deeply felt reserves of emotion. The symphonic masterstrokes of Denmark’s greatest musical hero, Carl Nielsen, take on extra significance in the hands of his compatriot Thomas Dausgaard.

Featuring violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja.
